CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Chinook organic hops rhizomes are usually planted to produce bittering hops. The cone-like female flowers develop high on long, very tall vines in late summer and are dried for use in craft beer making. Chinook has a very different aroma and flavouring quality than Willamette or Fuggles. Grow hops in full sun or partial shade, but be sure to provide ample vertical trellis for the tall vines to clamber up. Harvest and dry as you would any other variety.
Aroma: Spicy with smoky pine undertones.
Flavour: An earthy bitterness with a hint of spice (hotness).
Although we do not foresee a jump in prices, spring-harvested live goods are subject to shifts in availability and demand. Please confirm pricing in January.
Here is all the information you need on how to grow hops. Hops make a dramatic addition to ornamental gardens. Highly decorative, fast growing, trouble free, and cold hardy, hops give a flare and interest to gardens that few other plants do. Ideal for trellises and arbors and as a fast growing perennial hop bines are perfect for creating a privacy screen at the back of the garden. And no, bine is not a typo! A bine is any plant with a stem that twists around something as it grows. Hops are herbaceous perennials. Expect them to die back to the ground in the winter and to leap back to life in the spring.
